We want students to learn how and why the arts and engineering interact to construct a better world around us.
Our program gives students the experience of working with industry professionals while learning design, problem solving, team building, presentation, and technical skills. Its goal is to inspire and educate tomorrow’s engineering leaders by combining both academic and artistic areas of study.
COMBINE THE ARTS WITH ENGINEERING
Add a fresh and exciting program to inspire students considering technical careers as they learn the importance of creativity and aesthetics in architecture, engineering, and construction.
LEARN FROM REAL PROFESSIONALS
Put students alongside current engineers, designers, architects, and others who can give students an experiential understanding of engineering principles.
WHAT PARTICIPANTS SAY ABOUT US
Until EAA, I never considered a job in engineering or architecture, but now I’m caught making changes to my top colleges applications because I want to change my direction in life.
The EAA program engages and challenges students; it is critical for the future that today’s younger generation be able to problem solve in a creative manner.
I think EAA is special because it lets you work in groups and build things, which could motivate and prepare you to be an engineer or architect.
This program showed that engineering is more than just math. It showed me that engineering is beautiful and full of creativity.
This program provides a much needed link between scientific and mathematical principles and practical applications. It does this while still allowing for personal expression and encouraging creativity.
EAA is doing so much more than bringing engineers into the class. In a broader view, it is exposing students to a world of professional career paths and opening up a new world for students to consider.
